MADISONVILLE, Ky. (WEHT) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced the city of White Plains in Hopkins County will receive $9,300 in Municipal Road Aid emergency funds.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will direct those funds towards replacement of collapsed drainage tile beneath the surface of Hardwick Road. The repair work requires removal of asphalt, extensive ditching, installation of new tile and new aggregate and asphalt covering.
Collapsing tile has caused the street to cave in, and further damage could result in a closure.
